Liphook and District Model Railway Club layout on display

Titherleigh is set in the 1950s and early 1960s in the rather tranquil setting of the west of England. The layout depicts a sleepy branch terminus and is set on the old LSWR territory. The station boasts a loco shed for the branch engine, a dairy and a small goods yard.
The name Titherleigh can be interpreted as a field where the tithes or taxes were paid.
